Adventskalender 2011 season is started. You may be able to get many software in promos from different websites. Hopefully, I will be covering as many as possible. Today’s first giveaway is Nik Color Efex Pro 3 which normally costs around 100-Euros but now it is free. Let me tell you that this is not the latest version but not very old, too. It is fully compatible with Windows 7, Vista and XP. It also works on Mac OS X 10.5 and higher. This is 32-bit version of Nik Color Efex Pro 3 but it worked just fine on Windows 7 Enterprise x64. As I am not expert in graphical work, better to listen them “Only Color Efex Pro 3.0 Complete Edition is compatible with 64-bit host applications. If you currently own the Standard or Select editions and are using a 64-bit host application, please contact our contact our customer service team for upgrade options”. You can install it in English as well as in German.
Color Efex Pro 3.0 is the most advanced set of photographic filters. Color Efex Pro 3.0 features U Point®-powered Control Points, nine new powerful filters, and a new resizable user interface. Color Efex Pro 3.0 filters are designed to make photographic enhancements not only easier, but better. Based on continuous feedback from professionals in Nik Software‘s photographer community, Color Efex Pro 3.0 is a suite of proven controls to help photographers save time, get professional results and de-complicate the art of enhancing their images.
Bleach Bypass – Simulates the effect of processing color film and bypassing the bleach chemistry step. Use this filter for a high-contrast, low-saturation effect used by photographers and film makers alike.
Cross Balance – Simulates the look of shooting either tungsten-balanced film in daylight or daylight-balanced film under tungsten lights. Use this filter to create the cool blue or warm orange effect often used in stylizing images.
Film Effects – Offers the look and feel of over 30 different film types, realistically simulating color sensitivity, contrast, and grain for each film.
Film Grain – Adds realistic film grain to any image, with control over the size and placement throughout the image.
Glamour Glow – Gives portrait photographers a powerful way to stylize images with dreamy, soft effects.
Low Key – Simulates the look of low-key photography, characterized by uniformly dark tones and low contrast.
High Key – Simulates the look of high-key photography, characterized by uniformly light tones and low contrast.
Polaroid Transfer – Simulates the effect of using Polaroid color peel-apart films and transferring the nascent image to paper before it has fully developed. The result is a low-contrast, low-saturation version of the image, with subtle shifts to the colors throughout the image, reminiscent of this popular photographic technique.
Tonal Contrast – Allows powerful control over the contrast only of highlights, midtones or shadows, without affecting the rest of the image. Use this filter for highly targeted control of a particular portion of the tonal range of the image.
